Amerikaanse vakbondsfederatie wil samenwerken met milieu- en migrantenorganisaties

Op het congres van de AFL-CIO dat vandaag begint, zal voorzitter Richard Trumka voorstellen om de organisatie te verbreden. Steven Greenhouse van de New York Times:

He has called for inviting millions of nonunion workers into the labor movement even if their own workplaces are not unionized. Not stopping there, he has proposed making progressive groups — like the NAACP [een burgerrechtenorganisatie]; the Sierra Club [een milieuorganisatie]; the National Council of La Raza, a Hispanic civil rights group; and MomsRising, an advocacy group for women’s and family issues — either formal partners or affiliates of the A.F.L.-C.I.O.
